Jardin des Biehn

What is down the alley way......

.
..... around the corner
......and behind the door???
The home and garden of Frenchman Michel Biehn.
In the heart of Fes Medina, a peaceful oasis of simplicity and harmony set in a Andalusian garden where flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables grow under the shade of palms and olive trees. 


The Biehn are a French family who fell in love with Fez and settled in 10 years ago. Together, they have restored with much care the summer palace of a Pacha,
Michel was an antique dealer and brought to Fez his collections to decorate unexpectedly and with magic this charming hotel of real luxury. Catherine, his wife, is a sophrologist and sees patients in her office. Their children Paul, Jeanne and Louis, are often there with them to liven up this exceptional place.



The family home is also a BandB and cafe.
The original King's room.

  3. Such a lot of 'gorgeousness''. Melbourne is going to look so bland.

  5. Looks like a restful escape. Must admit I had to look up 'sophrology'.
